In Loving Memory of
January 1, 2014

Handler: Officer Steven Mayfield

 Reno Police Department
Police dog Xero dies from medical condition

On the morning of January 1st, 2014 Reno Police Service Canine Xero passed away at his handler's residence in North Reno. 
 Xero was recently diagnosed with an inoperable medical condition and his passing was a result of complications of
that condition. Xero was partnered with Reno Police Officer Steven Mayfield in June of 2007, and was an asset
 to the department and community which he served.  Xero and Officer Mayfield assisted every unit of the
 Reno Police Department as well as all of the local, state and federal law enforcement agencies in
Northern Nevada.  Xero was instrumental in locating large amounts of drugs, and in the arrests of those
 suspected of selling drugs.  Xero also spent many hours at Police Canine Demonstrations with local
children who enjoyed his loving disposition.  As a dual-purpose police service canine, Xero also tracked
 criminals, located evidence and protected his fellow officers.
